Henry Mcldrnm, o: Oregon City, as
appointed surveyor-general of Oregon
on Saturday by 1'resident McKinlcy,
The appointment was made on recorn
mendation of Senator Mitchell,
The proposal to stock any of our trout
streams with bass, pickerel and other
eastern fUh should be strenuously op'
poeed. Where this has been tried it
has meant the practical extinction of
trout and salmon. For both edible and
gamy qualities, salmon ami trout hn
m superiors and few equals in the
piscatorial world and a stieam we
stocked with them has variety enough
Salmon and trout are of the aristocracy
of lisliis and our uportmnen should sre
that no groteHiue looking foreigners are
brought here to hamper their exigence
in the waters of this stale.
Tne Cubans are now on the point
of organizing their own government
Many doubt the ability of Oils people to
govern themselves with any degree of
credit and whether or not they hnve
this ability li a matter which will coon
be deinnuslraled. The United Bliites,
in accordance with prouri s n ale, can
lint do lent lliau allow them to try.
There is a large party in Cuba favoring
annexation to the United States ami
this parly comprina the more cultured
portion of the people. Tlio United
States will exurcixe a guardianship over

in accordance with the accpted method
ol Spanish American countries, which
calls for a revolution at least hieumnllv.
Our climatic advantages are eti
pbasized from time to time by the re
ports of grotesque climatic conditions in
other placet. The following dispatch
from ilayiinis, Neb., under date of April
27, it ill own commentary l or the
last three, duyi the sand hills of this
section ol the stale have been a seething
sea of fire. About noun Thursday,
lightning set fire to the range in several
places. The. ranchmen have been tin
nbls thus far to -check the flames. A
district of about 100 miles in length and
from 10 to 40 miles in wldlh has been
totally swept of hay and the dry prairie
grass that for a month to come would
have served as tiie only food for cattle.
It is impossible to estimate the damage
that has been dune. Many ranchmen
have no feed lelt for their cattle, and it
It thought that a hoavy loss of stock
will he the consequence.
Next Monday is the date of our misl
important muncipal event, the aim ml
city election. In the present conies',
the I meruit is centered exchmivuly in
the election of mayor. No other issue
il evident. Uuder the present cl.arler
t lie mayor Is given more power than
before and the Inlluonco he is ablo to
exercised in city governmental all'airs
il Increased. The olllco Is one of greater
importance and responsibility than ever
belore. Hpokuu in plain words, the
IjMiei of the election are these; Kinney
and aiiti Klnuey, and so the factious
are divided. The principles that Mr.
Kinney stands on are good government
and compliance with the law soil hi
record during the past year of his in
cumbency as mayor has proven him a
linn supporter of his principles. No
one, not even a saloon man, has a right
I) oppose the enforcement of (lie law
and il such procedure hurts him it is
Ids owu fault, for being In a wrong
position. While Mr. Kinney hat de
cided opinions of his own and is linn in
Ids policy, he lias shown himself to be
ftlr minded in coinddeiation id all
(jiienlion. His lirinni'9 In administra
tion has won li i in both npkiHiiion and
support, but no one can deny Unit this
quality is veiy necessary in a mayor.
He is a strong, able and vigorous man
and one w ho believes ill clean principles
and good government. His ellorls as
mayor have been in this direction and
I s should b continued in olllce.

THE COMING CONTEST.
A Communlcsled Opinion
Regard to the Ponding
The issue of this election is not polil -cal.
His not whether or no we shall
favor the water company or the scte,
age system, but resolves Itself ineruly
into this: Who shall hold the reins of
citv government for the next twelve
months? Last year our good citizens
worked nobly, with the result that 1 1n y
won the mayor by a good majority much
to the surprise of the other side. This
year the fight will hn a harder one not
only because the now charier grants
more power lo the niavor but becauw
the whinky men are determined to win.
They have, been planning this ( lection
lor mouths. The intoxication and
hilarity on (the night of the ward and
cily pilmaries was evidence enough that
the treat was on, anil slangeriug men
and boyt upon our streets every evening
all go to show, alas, that election is near.
The law breakers, for what else ran yon
call those who do not keep the law, have
put up the hi Ht iiiiin they could find
who would favor their interests, hut
citizens and voters you can see thai Ihe
man who it everybody's friend is a
friend of Ihe law breaker too, and
becomes In their hands as wax to be
molded as they please, The mayor can
do little himself but villi four goi.d
